Ones To Watch: Gin Annie

Taking centre stage in the 47th instalment of our Ones To Watch feature are West Midlands hard rockers Gin Annie.

Gin Annie are: Dave Foster (vocals), Byron Garbett  (guitar/vocals), Brian Green (guitar/vocals), Phill ‘Hammer’ Burrows (bass) and Jack Ryland-Smith (drums).

Hailing from Wolverhampton, Gin Annie are purveyors of top notch high octane hard rock. Their songs are refreshingly heavy and guitar driven whilst maintaining a melodic vocal style; instantly infectious, hook-laden choruses and classy melodies.

They are based around the nucleus of cousins, Dave Foster (vocals) and Byron Garbett (guitars). In November 2017, the Black Country rockers saw a change of line-up to form MKII of the band, with the addition of Brian Green on guitar and Phill ‘Hammer’ Burrows on bass. Drumming powerhouse Jack Ryland-Smith completes the group.

With a series of live shows lined up for late 2018, including a coveted slot at Planet Rockstock, Gin Annie will kick off 2019 by unleashing their debut album ‘100% Proof’ on Friday 25th January via Off Yer Rocka Records. Produced and engineered by Jay Shredder and recorded at Shredder Live Lounge in Kidderminster, the album is available to pre-order in a variety of packages via Pledge Music now.

Byron Garbett says of the record: “We are thrilled to announce details of our debut album – 100% Proof. A lot of heavy riffs and heavy nights went into the writing and recording of this and we can’t wait for folks to get their ears around it. It’s just 5 guys from the Black Country making a racket but one we hope many will enjoy.”
